Eran Mendel’s hilarious weekly GIFs based on each Game of Thrones episode’s most shocking moment
Throughout Game of Thrones sixth season, Tel Aviv-based illustrator and animator Eran Mendel created one looping GIF a week – focussing on an iconic moment from each in a way that’s bound to raise a smile (though perhaps a sad one for Episode 2).
Now as a rule. we don’t cover unofficial fan tributes to Game of Thrones, primarily because there are more of them than men in the Lannister army – and most of them are about as awful as Ramsey Bolton’s fate at the end of Battle of the Bastards. However, we couldn’t not cover these – as they just so fun – they’ve proved incredibly popular both with our readers and across social media
Eran’s repeating this for the new Season 7 – with his latest for Episode 3 being what might seem to be a simple romantic moment if you don’t know that it refers to one of the episode’s darkest moments.
You check out his other Game of Thrones GIFs from Season 6 and 7 on the following pages – and Eran’s other work on Dribbble and Facebook. I caught up with him over email to find out more about the project.
